The real tragedy of compromising on same sex marriage

Jesus was discussing the sin of adultery with the Apostles and made the statement: “ You have heard that it was said, You shall not commit adultery. “ But I say to you that everyone looking upon a woman in order to lust after her already has committed adultery with her in his heart.” (Matthew 5:27-28) So the real sin is in the heart, it doesn’t have to be following through with the physical act.

The same is true of the sin of homosexuality. If you agree with same sex marriage and homosexuality, you have sinned in your heart and you will be judged on that basis even though you may not have been involved in the physical act yourself. “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” If you agree homosexuality is ok, you become a homosexual in your heart, just the same as an adulterer, the thought in you heart makes you an adulterer and you will be judged as one.

All sin is judged and written about in the Bible but the sin of homosexuality is especially called out because it is sinning against your own body and evil spirits of perversion come and take up residence in your soul. That’s why there is such a mental and emotional battle in a homosexual’s mind causing sickness depression or other issues because at one time they knew deep inside their soul it’s a major sin and they will not make it to heaven, so all they have is this life and they know it, but love their sin to much to change, they choose eternal damnation for the few years of a homosexual relationship, how sad.

Many places in the Bible there is great warning against homosexuality, so if people are warned they are able to stop it and repent just like an adulterer can stop it, repent and be forgiven. Romans says God gives them over to a reprobate mind to do what dishonors them because they reject truth and God. Romans 1:25 “They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen.

Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones.” “In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.” Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done.”

1st Corinthians 6:9-11 goes even further and states: “ Or do you not know that the unrighteous ones will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor coveters, not drunkards, nor verbal abusers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Clearly homosexuals will not go to heaven including the deceived “supposedly Christian homosexuals” (which is impossible). But wait, look: “And some of you were such. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” So there you go, some WERE in the same boat, but repented and now are on their way to heaven. No sin is beyond the blood of Jesus!

Lastly, in the final book of the Bible, Revelation 22:15 the warning of hell is given, “Outside are the dogs, and the sorcerers, and the sexually immoral, and the murderers, and the idolaters, and everyone loving and practicing lying.” It’s plain as the nose on your face; homosexuality is sexual immorality and a mortal sin because you are sinning against your own body that God gave you which is suppose to be His temple for the Holy Spirit to reside, not evil spirits and demons invited in by homosexual sin. There is hope in Jesus and salvation in his name. And don’t be deceived, if you compromise on this issue you will be judged just the same…

Endurance in These Terrible Times

Endurance in These Terrible Times

Regardless of what you see happening around the world, and your personal world, now is the time for us to have endurance in faith that the promises and prophesies of God are true and just and He will bring us through the terrible times we see now and the perilous times coming.

Wickedness is increasing by leaps and bounds across the globe as wars and rumors of wars are in the daily headlines. Governments are corrupting themselves and leader’s agendas are evil and self-serving with no regard for the public or countries they are supposed to serve. By lies and manipulation; they convince the majority of the masses to worship them and their governments instead of worshiping the only true God and trusting only in Him. Corruption and evil in high places, leaders driven by non other then the enemy of our souls who captivate their minds with all sorts of evil and self abasement. Their conscience seared by their lusts of power and money with egos out of control.

For any born again believer, these things should come as no surprise, although the surprise seeing it all happen in your lifetime is perhaps hard to fathom. Jesus warnings in Matthew 24 about the end of the age are broadcast on your television on a daily basis. Wake up world, the end times are approaching fast and the signs are all around us.

Let’s be clear here. God does not cause all this evil, Satan does with the blessings of evil men who no longer want God the Creator to be a part of their lives or governments or countries or states or cities. Giving open doors to the evil one to come and wreck havoc because permission was given by evil men. Once protected by the mighty hand of God, because righteous men loved and worshiped Him, new generations of godless leaders along with their masses who love sin have caused God’s hand of protection to be lifted off the evil ones and now murder and chaos and riots and severe weather and earthquakes  are becoming the norm. As in the days of Noah Jesus said and the earth is heading that direction full steam ahead.

More and more the bombings will come to a city near you because of evil men and governments who are helpless to stop them because of the policies and beliefs of political correctness and evil laws providing for open sin and rebellion against the Almighty Father who loves us all and sent His Son Jesus to die for us so we could live. The economies of the world are on the brink of disaster, hanging on by a thread. Soon the bubble will burst and entire globe will cry out in anguish and food becomes scarce and riots in the streets will be the new protests. Nuclear war could happen at any time in the Middle East spreading across the globe, the times are ripe. Think not? Watch and see within the next few years and remember the prophesies of the bible. We have need of endurance in these times.

The supposed Rapture of the church is wishful thinking, the bible just does not teach that. What it does teach is Jesus is coming again at the end of age at the sound of the last (7th) trumpet and the years of tribulation just ahead will reveal the anti-christ upon the earth who takes control of most countries until Jesus comes and destroys him. At that time the believers will be taken up to be with Jesus forever. People in the west think it’s all about them when in reality; it’s about Israel and the Middle East. All of Israel will be saved in the end. We have need of endurance.

What the bible teaches is the wheat and the tares (the saved and the unsaved) will grow up together. Evil will wax worse and worse and it will look like Christianity is in retreat, but the truth is it will be the greatest outpouring of the Spirit of God in history and the greatest harvest of souls ever will take place. More people will become believers than any other time in history just before the end comes. Believers today are and will be the evangelist of tomorrow leading many to Jesus Christ during the tribulation telling them of the great love of Jesus and what is transpiring knowing what the word of God says.

Even during these final days God mighty hand will provide and protect those who believe and He will reveal His glory even in difficult times. Some believers will die for their faith as is happening around the globe even now. Some will go to prison, some will be persecuted in other ways, but in all of it God’s glory will be revealed. To try to save your life means you will lose your soul taking the mark of the beast or giving allegiance to the anti-christ. But to lose you life for your faith will actually save your soul and forever you will live in heaven with God. We all have need of endurance.

“Therefore, do not throw away you confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised. For yet in a little while He who is coming will come, and will not delay. But My righteous one shall live by faith; and if he shrinks back, My soul has no pleasure in Him. But we are not of those who shrink back to destruction, but of those who have faith to the preserving of the soul. Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the men of old gained approval………….”
